Russian Circles | Harper Lewis
Russian Circles, whom we love, are about to release a new album on Suicide Squeeze records called Station. They just posted a song on Pitchfork/iMeem (OMG which came first) from the new album called “Harper Lewis”.
The good news is that it’s all good news. This song definitely harkens a less prog-driven album since the drums are much less poly-rhythmic and much more a floor tom and snare pummel and their newly recruited bass player (formerly of These Arms Are Snakes) stays low on the neck and strums out deep, brooding lows.
The guitar player is still just a bad ass. Halfway through the song his hands shift up the guitar-neck and start tapping out notes. The way he’s able to dance his fingers across that fret board must make him a formidable whack-a-mole opponent. Can not wait for this album to come out.
